    hello,

    Recaptcha does not block spam anymore, can I add your plugin and keep recaptcha ?

    I was looking for a simple question captcha but could not find it.

    After reading your plugin front page it looks interesting, but I am wondering if you are still working on it?

    Thank you so much.

    Sorry for the delay in responding – other projects have gotten in the way, and forgot about this.

    To answer your question, if you already have a recaptcha thing going for your comment form, adding this plugin should not affect it. The plugin uses standard WP ‘hooks’, so there should be no compatibility issues.

    Note that a recaptcha will not affect bots that submit directly to your WP comment code. When you install the plugin, the settings/info screen (there aren’t any settings) will tell you why, and porvide you with a CURL command you can run from your command prompt that will show how easy it is for a bot to submit a comment – and how this plugin will block that attempt.

    You might also be interested in my blog entry about how bots work with comment/contact forms: https://www.securitydawg.com/how-bots-spam-contact-forms/ . It explains how easy it is to do. This plugin will block those CURL attempts.

    Hope this helps. Again, sorry for the delay in responding. Add a review here if you try this plugin out and it works well for you. Thanks.
